    I would like to mount my Time Capsule on a wall, with the "feet" on he wall, so it is flipped on its side. Any problem with this for the hard drive?

    Hard drives are mounted sideways all the time. Just look at the iMac! I don't think there should be any problems.

    The only issue you might have is with reception. The antennas are on the sides of the TC (front, left and right) so placing it on one of those sides may impact reception. But as for the HDD, as BlueRevolution mentioned they're designed to spin horizontally and vertically so you're safe.

    I've had an Apple TV sat on its side for weeks, no problems so far. As has been said, drives are mounted sideways all the time.
